Gamer Archetypes: The Fanboy – Learn to Love and Love to Hate

The Koalition Writes: "As long as there have been things in the world, there have been fans of those things. When you bring in another thing that directly challenges or rivals that original thing, you get divisions. People take sides, feelings are formed and friendships can very well be destroyed. This is especially true in the world of gaming. Sega does what Nintendon't! Sony has better exclusives! Xbox has the best online! My box of virtual entertainment is inherently and objectively better than that other box of virtual entertainment for an entirely subjective reason! The list goes on and on."

Fanboys are by far one of the most annoying things about the game industry. I'm all for if someone prefers one console over another but to bash another person just because they like the other brand is beyond stupid. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are all good companies but are all far from perfect plain and simple.
